Free and Forgiven.
Colossians 1:14 (TLB)
14 “Who bought our freedom with his blood and forgave us all our sins.”
If we understand the scripture set before us today. If we do, Jesus should have a dramatic impact on the way we are living right now. The Lord Jesus is in a league of His own when it comes to forgiveness of sins. I doubt I have the same way of dealing with forgiveness as He does. I hope that I don’t view this without knowing the implications for my sins. I reflect and meditate on what happened to the Lord Jesus. When Jesus Christ’s aggressors committed the ultimate crime, they executed their holy Creator.
I keep grudges against my fellow man, am I holding a horrible illegitimate grudge? If the Lord Jesus was able to forgive me of all my iniquities, then why do I still bear grudges against people who hurt me? So in all fairness do I emulate God’s grace in my life?
Abba Father, Lord it is by free grace that I have salvation through faith. And this salvation is not of myself, but it is the gift of You Lord. Today, LORD may I stay in Your grace, if I am proud or arrogant, please forgive me. Let Your Word be over my soul, mind and cleanse my heart. Without You Lord Jesus I cannot face this day. Thank You, for paying the ultimate price on the cross for my sins. All glory and honour due to Your Holy Name. Amen
